High Ropes Course in Nagold,Germany

In German this is know as the HOCHSEILGARTEN.
This high ropes course is free-standing and one of the largest in Southern Germany.
After training with instructors you can go on 5 different courses from easy to extremely difficult.

This course is located Am Eisberg
72202 Nagold
Telephone: 0175 277 2298
The course is rather expensive 27 Euro
Children must be 10 years old to go. They cost 15 euro
You can buy a family pass which is discounted 15%
There is a playground for younger children and 
they also offer team-building events for groups.

The course is located on the old Eisbergkaserne. This base is closed now but, at one time was home to German Airborne paratroopers.
Drive straight to the end of the base. Park your car.  Now you have about a half-mile walk to get to the course.

One of the local farmers had just put some sheep and lambs in a pasture.  They were so sweet to watch as we made our way down to the Hochseilgarten.

I am feeling a strange kinship.

They don't take safety lightly here.  An instructor is always present up on the course to provide advice to each climber, should you need it.

Now the instructor takes you to a LOW practice place to make sure you understand what to do.

Jonny has it mastered.

If you have a fear of heights they offer a special program and take extra care with you.
Luckily Mac has NO FEAR!

Now just look at their faces.  These are two men that had a marvelous time at the Hochseilgarten.
"Bless their hearts!"
